  1. A, 1/10 at A’s 10 YL. A7 drops back into his EZ to pass and his face mask is pulled by B37. A7 (a) is downed in the EZ, or (b) fumbles and the ball goes OOB in the EZ Clock status?

  2. K1 punts to R17 who is tackled at R’s 30 YL. R11 commits a BIB at R’s 35 YL during the kick. The R and U correctly administer the 10 yard penalty. The ball is placed at R’s 20 YL, A, 1/10. After two plays have been run, resulting in a loss of 10 yards, A’s coach asks why it is 3/30. The officiating crew realizes that the chain crew did not properly set the chains on the COP at the20 YL instead of the 30 YL. Can the chains be reset to reflect the correct LTG?

  3. Regulation play ends with the score tied. One of the HC’s wants to use their one TO before the coin toss to discuss possible options with his captains. Legal?

  4. K, 4/10 at K’s 12 YL. K6 takes the snap, runs to his right and then performs a rugby style punt at K’s 16 YL. (a) The kicked ball is caught by R21 at R’s 40 YL and is tackled there, or (b) R76 attempts to block the kick and runs into K6 and knocks him to the ground at the K 16 YL. R21 catches the ball at R’s 40 YL and is tackled there. Clock status?

  5. A, 2/10 from B’s 37 YL. A11’s legal FP is intercepted by B13 at B’s 3 YL. B13’s momentum takes him into his own EZ where an official blows an IW.

  6. K, 4/10 at K’s 5 YL. K1 is in his EZ when he kicks. The kick crosses the NZ and strikes R8 on the helmet and rebounds back into K’s EZ, where K7 recovers the ball and carries it to K’s 10 YL. Clock?

  7. A, 3/10 at B’s 15 YL. A10 runs to B’s 4 YL and, unable to get OOB, throws a FP that falls incomplete. When the ball is dead, 7 seconds remain in the game. In (a), A is behind by 2 points, or (b) A is ahead by 2 points.
